Christmas 2021

All the churches in Kidlington and Hampton Poyle are planning events and services in their buildings for the Advent and Christmas period. While it is hoped that these can all go ahead, there may need to be changes if COVID circumstances change. We will try to keep the information here up-to-date, reflecting any such changes. You can also find more details in the individual websites for the churches, as shown below. These will also give information about services provided online for those unable to or uncomfortable with attending in-person.
